Hi I've never used visual editors. That's why we made etiquetags: a very easy-to-use and complete html editor . There is a new version and plugin: thank you very much

I run a couple of websites, and use the visual editor a lot. However recently my personal blog has decided that the visual editor no longer wants to work - I get no kitchen sink icons etc, so I am back to plain HTML. Other blogs I run that will show the visual editor correctly, I will use the visual editor. It saves me time and effort (on most cases). And I'd rather go to HTML to fix a problem than checking my visuals are fine then going back to HTML when they're not.

I've been using the code editor for some time, as the visual editor is capable of some very odd things. Having said that, I'm constantly frustrated by the quirks of the code editor, as it interprets HTML in its own, peculiar fashion. Anyone thoroughly familiar with HTML will wonder why WordPress doesn't follow the rules!

I use the visual editor for most of the writing and then switch to HTML to make sure everything is looking tidy.

Visual editor never do what i want, it's a pain to see my post created by visual editor. Always turn it off now and looking for a plugin to enhance the code editor to include more function.

It's not really my cup of tea because of my history with html/css... i was a notepad kid... and the visual editor kind of robs me of my xhtml youth :P

I do just about everything manually even though there are probably reasons to use the advanced editor. I think I'm a throwback from the days when frontpage would toss in extraneous code into HTML. Plus, if I can't see the tags, I feel like I'm cheating.

I have it turned off since I like to control the coding in the posts.

I use the visual editor most of the time for setting up my post. I do find myself having to go into the code view and make tweaks to fix stuff. At times the editor does create some less than desired results.

I use it because it is fast and comfortable. But sometimes it is better to use the simple input area to fix problems

I use ecto to post to WP anyway, so I don't care what they do with the Web interface. However, I think they should always have the WYSIWYG editor available.

I started giving it another chance when 2.2 came out. I don't mind it, but I do think the older method is probably the preferable one. It's not a "hardcore" issue with me, I just like the performance of the plain text editor better.

I don't use the visual editor because the tags I do need aren't listed in the tool bar. I cross post my entries on one of my blogs to LiveJournal, and use their cut tag pretty frequently. There are also a few other regular tags that I use fairly often. I tried using the visual editor for awhile, but it gets in my way because I still type html snippets out of habit. The plain text editor is faster for me. The only time I leave it on is when I set up a WP install for friends who don't want code to get in their way.

Mine is actually broken. Things I type into the visual editor do not get saved when I hit 'save' or 'publish.

This whole notion of it messing up is really an old one. I am sure they've fixed many of the bugs that plagued the very early versions included with the first visual editor, but I feel more comfortable doing things by hand. Especially when it comes to images, not so much with simple things like bold, italic and whatnot...

I use the visual editor most of the time. I got over myself and needing to be hardcore about writing something a few years ago. The visual editor lets me see what the formatting is looking like as I write it. Sure, there's a few quirks that are annoying in it but nothings perfect. I think it handles the standard stuff like bold, indent, italic, center, images, links, etc, just fine, not sure why you think it doesn't do that or why coding those tags by hand are better.. curious.
